New Year resolutions are a wonderful thing – but many of them get broken by the end of January. There’s no chance of that happening to any of our 29 resolutions for 2021, as suggested in our cover feature (p56), as Digital Camera readers are a determined bunch. From the importance of running longform projects to trying out new styles and genres, there’s something for photographers of all abilities to take on board. As always, it’s inspiration galore this month, with a sledge-load of new photo projects in Photo Active (p16) and Stay at Home (p41), while it’s bird’s eye views all the way as our Hotshots gallery (p82) showcases the winners of 2020 Aerial Photographer of the Year. Plus, we round up some last-minute gifts for photographers (p114) and consider…

Portrait photographer Following spells working as a musician and teacher, David turned his hobby into his career.

So when life locked down, they were fully prepared and able to carry on as much as normal under the circumstances. David Shoukry is one such photographer – based in Wiltshire, he specialises in portraiture of people working in the performance arts, including actors, models and musicians. This latter category is particularly close to David’s heart,…

levitation inspiration

10 things to shoot, edit or create this month, including urban memoryscapes and a collection of lighthouses Specialising in fashion and portraits, my style consists of surreal, ethereal, and whimsical imagery. I’ve gained attention through my conceptual and surreal photography, which I find to be the most soul-fulfilling. Although I’ve been a photographer for more than 10 years, I still consider myself a newbie, as there is still so much out there to learn. Some of my favourite works are from experimental shoots, where I attempted to do something out of my comfort zone. Initially, I’m often sceptical of it working, but if you don’t try something new, you will never learn. From compositing to crafting, and from wardrobe creation to set design, the possibilities are endless! Once you’ve gained confidence, I suggest…
